Hospice is a holistic wrap around service of care. It’s not just a building and its not just doctors and nurses.
Anyone with a life limiting illness, can access hospice care and support. People with life limiting conditions such as multiple sclerosis, lung failure, cancer, motor neurone disease, or dementia can benefit from palliative care.
Whilst hospice care is primarily focused on the person who is dying, services are also for the family and whānau both before and after their loved one has died.
